Legal A frontier where copyright reformists are actually scoring wins - not by reforming copyright, but by working around it.

What if the publicized results show that the money was largely spent on redundant/useless research?


Well, some results will always be below the expectations, I'm sorry, but that's how research is. You propose something, you try your best (hopefully), and sometimes you reach beyond the expectations, sometimes you don't. It's up to the reviewers - who sometimes can be really PITAs believe me - to decide whether the work done still deserves the money.
